Gerard Puana was framed by the Honolulu Chief of Police (Louis Kealoha) and his wife (Katherine Kealoha), the third-highest ranking prosecutor in the state of Hawaii for a crime he did not commit...stealing their mailbox. After a hung trial, I convinced the US Attorneys Office to dismiss the case and refer it to the FBI. A special prosecutor was appointed by Attorney General Holder which led to the indictment, conviction, and imprisonment of the Kealohas and several other police officers who all conspired to violate my client's civil rights. The grand jury investigation continues to this date with the indictments of other high-ranking state officials, including the chief state prosecutor and the head of the state's corporation counsel, all allegedly involved in a cover up. My book, The Mailbox Conspiracy, details how we uncovered the evidence of the frame up and how we convinced prosecutors to go after these powerful state law enforcement officials.
